24 Hour Gaming Challenge

March 20

How to Host your own gaming and fundraising stream




This 24 hour Gaming challenge is a great way to stay social with Friends and Family. You can encourage them to take part with you along the way and play your favourite games, all within the comfort of your own home!
Our 24 hour Gaming challenge gives you the ideal excuse to sit and play video games all day and all night on Saturday 20th March, because you are raising money for a great cause!
How to Host your own gaming and fundraising stream.The process is straight forward and we are here to help you along the way if you get stuck at all.
1. Make sure to choose your desired console – PlayStation, XBOX, Nintendo, PC ( Remember 24 hours is a long time so you need to make sure you are on your favourite one!)
2. Choose a platform you are going to stream on – think where you are likely to get a better response, for example, Twitch or YouTube
3. On 20th March decide what time you want your livestream to happen
• What time are you going to start/finish
• Are you going to be doing it with any friends/family members?
• What games are you going to play and in what order/at what time?
4. Set up a fundraising page for donations
• We recommend setting up a justgiving page, as you can easily share you link with others and it is very simple to use.
• Include all the live stream information (including link, timings etc.) on your page so it is all in one place for people.
5. Promotion
• Share on social media to create a buzz building up to the day. ( if you notify us of your date/time, we can help promote your event.)
• Make sure to tag us on social media so we can share your post.
6. Set goals with incentives to encourage donations.
• Engage with the people watching and ask them to interact with you while playing ( please try to refrain from using bad language & anything that people may find offensive)
• Include donation goals and ensure donation alerts come through while playing & potentially shout them out for the support
• If people donate a certain amount they could choose your team, weapon etc. Then when you reach your main target goal of £100 you could do something fun to celebrate with everyone.
Minimum sponsorship – We are asking you commit to raising £100 sponsorship.
